Spaghetti Squash with Arugula Pesto

Hi guys! Just wanted to share an easy recipe I had for lunch today made with spaghetti squash and pesto. This took less than 15 minutes to make and was delicious.

I am honored to be a guest blogger this month for Better Homes and Gardens. The task was simple, test out a few of their recipes adding my own spin to share on their blog, Delish Dish. As a side dish, this was under 150 calories ,4 PP or 3 SP.  Please visit Delish Dish for the full recipe.


  1. I'm sitting with a spaghetti squash in the pantry right now and trying to decide how to eat it (will be first time...super excited). I've got many ideas thanks to you. : )

  2. That is soooo funny! I made arugula pesto last night and put it over grilled swordfish! I was thinking of using it for spaghetti squash that I bought at the market, but decided to use it over the fish instead!! I never used arugula before for the pesto base so I winged it and it turned out delish! :) Next I want to try to use fresh spinach and make it as a cold dip for appetizers.

  3. Thank you for this recipe! My wife and cousin loves this!

  4. This looks yummy.....out of all the skinny sites out there....this is my go to site, the others are no competition! I have been using your recipes for years now! I would just like to say thank you for listing the OLD points still :) it is so helpful. The Points Plus does nothing for me, the old points do work, so thank you! I know a lot of other people are still on the old points too, so I'm thanks from those of us like me!!!

    1. Thank you : ) I am so happy to hear that!

  5. I eat spaghetti squash often ~ even my hubby is starting to prefer it over pasta (less bloat). I make a super easy Ratatoui to put on top *using diced yellow squash, zucchini, garlic, mushrooms, fire roasted tomatoes, olive oil & parm - after i sautee all of those ingredients together its an amazing topping for your spaghetti squash. LOVE IT and its all good stuff. Occasionally we will have a small side of steak with it.

  6. This looks so good! Check out our fit and healthy recipe on our blog today, featuring a warm quinoa and spinach salad! http://www.fiftytwothursdays.us/foodie/warm-quinoa-spinach-salad/
